Chalkboard paint

I made a wonderful discovery - at least for me it was. Chalkboard paint!!! I was so excited to paint my own chalkboard on a wall in the homeschool room. If I ever want to do away with it, I just have to grab new paint and roll over it! It has been a great tool to use in school. The only problem is that it looked so cute I painted another on a different wall. (That one is for notes and reminders.) Maybe I should have painted the bottom half of the boys' room with this - they could write on the walls! I was so enthused I thought I would paint the front of two kitchen cabinets. It would be great for writing a shopping list, menu or recipe. HALT!!!! Troy was not "wondering" about that idea. I think it was closer to panic. "Since there is a good possiblity we may not be in this house for many years, let's not do anything that drastic." How "drastic" can chalkboard paint be?! :-) Sigh. My "real" kitchen - the permanent one that I get when Troy is done with grad school - will have two chalkboard cabinets. (Just thought you would like to know.)

Very nice! I think a couple of chalkboard cabinets is a wonderful idea. You've got me to wondering where in the kitchen "chalkboard" paint would look nice. Hmmm....

I'm surprised you had never heard of that before. We are going to use magnetic paint in a room for the boys. You paint the layer on before the color of paint you want. I have also heard it takes 3 coats to get it to the strong magnetic potential desired. Now we are deciding which "bold" color to use. I'm like you, I like it bright and I'm sick of the white!
